Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Their Sun Microsystems, they are basically a mini pc but they don't have a hdd, So you can plugin a monitor, power, network, keyboard and mouse(usb). They also have a keycard like slot in the front for access(looks like a creditcard with a phone sim patch).
I'll get a couple of pics to help identify them better, I can't think what else to explain about them other than the accounts they use are added,stored and accessed from the server.
Its a first for me to as i had never seen these type of terminals before they arrived at my work and can't seem to get good info on there management and server management other than a few install docs floating around the net.
If i could get a start on the server(finally got some success today and was able to add accounts, though when logging in i have a host problem).
Anything in the right direction would be most appreciated, KeenAs
Glad you picked that up in my description(OS/Less), forgot to include it, Thanks for directing me to a better start on the sun site.
I have gone to the sun docs site and have started to download the relevant info docs regarding installation and configuration of the SunRays software for the server and also found some info on smartcards which im assuming are what i described as CC like cards with a sim patch.
Looks like its not going to be an easy task, If you or anyone have anymore suggestions it would be most appreciated..
